The Correspondents – Fear & Delight

The Correspondents are an English duo. The singer is blond. The non-singer is not blond.  I don’t know anything else about them. “Fear & Delight” is a fun song, with a poppy electroswing-esque sound for most of the song, with a bridge that’s a bit more dubsteppy. It’s catchy and certainly danceable. I like the song, but what’s really cool is the video. They’re definitely going for a bit of an updated Jeeves & Wooster vibe, and they pull it off nicely. Many clones of the singer dance around and sing to us, then change into skeletal costumes for the bridge, change back, and finally are eliminated by an Artemis-like character. One of the better videos I’ve seen recently. Definitely The Correspondents’ best song and video. If they interest you, they’ve got a few other videos up, and apparently a new album coming out in early 2014.
